In general, we recruit the coaches, organize the teams, arrange practice & game schedules, and address any issues that arise during the season. The season looks roughly like this...
April - May: Player & Coach Registrations.
June: Coach registrations and initial team organizations.
July: Finalize Coaches & teams and schedule practice fields for August.
August: Set game schedule, possibly with games starting before Labor Day.
September: Games get rolling.
October: Games are finishing up typically by Halloween.
Here are more specific details by age group:
U6 - The Age Coordinator doesn't schedule fields for practices. These coaches can use whatever location they'd like as they don't need a bunch of room to practice. A huge focus for this age group is encouraging new parents to the league to get involved in coaching.
U7/8 - The only difference from U6 is that this Age Coordinator does arrange the practice schedule so they can use the fields that games will be on. The coaches get to select their times from available slots.
U10 - This age starts to use goalies and referees, but that doesn't change anything for the Age Coordinators. What really changes is scores being reported and having a City Cup at the end of the season.
U12 - Depending on the number of teams, this may look a lot like U10 or more like U14 and above.
U14+ - These older ages have fewer teams so they play interleague against other leagues in the area. The bulk of this Age Coordinator's duties then is to communicate and work with other leagues in the area to schedule games.
